A palm reading usually starts with the dominant hand, be it right or left. Right hands are controlled by the left side of the brain and is considered masculine. The opposite is of course true of the left hand. Your hand will also have a certain shape, named after each of the elements. An Earth hand is broad with broad fingers. Air hands are square or rectangular with long fingers. Water hands have short palms and long fingers, and Fire hands have square or rectangular palms and short fingers.
The most commonly known lines on the hands are the head line, the heart line, the life line and the fate line. There is far too much information to write it all here, but in short here is a little bit of the meaning of the lines stated above:
|1: Life line - 2: Head line - |
3: Heart line - 4: Girdle of Venus -
5: Sun line - 6: Mercury line - 7: Fate line
1. The Head Line - Represents a person's mind. Can tell how a person learns and in general the way their mind works.
2. The Heart Line - Represents, of course, the heart. Emotions and even cardiac health.
3. The Life Line - The life line is thought to represent a person's major life changes, as well as a person's physical health.
4. The Fate Line - This line is said to be tied to a person's life path, and the person's life circumstances and choices.
There is so much more information on palm reading that would never fit here. Somewhat surprisingly, Wikipedia has a great article on it. This site, simply called Palmistry, looks to be a great resource as well.
Have any of you ever read a palm, or had your palms read?
